Starting this weekend, summer is officially upon us. But if you haven't booked a full month-long stay at a dreamy Hamptons house (or simply can't afford that kind of extravagant getaway), we've got you covered: Each week, we'll be scouring the listings for last-minute getaways that are still available for the coming weekend. After all, even last-minute planners deserve summer escapes from the city, right?

First up, we stumbled upon this two-bedroom cottage in East Hampton on VRBO, which, as of press time, is still available for Memorial Day weekend, Friday through Monday (the listing notes a minimum stay of three nights). The average nightly price is $485/night (though you'll need to confirm the price when you book), and unlike many vacation rentals that are still open at the 11th hour, this one has user reviews, and a five-star rating.

There's a scenic sitting porch, as well as a spacious backyard with parking, and all the reviews note that the home is a short walk from town as well as the beach, and comes stocked with beach chairs, and umbrella, and other seasonal gear.

The bedrooms and living space all look cozy, but nicely decorated and functional:

The home also comes equipped with a laundry room, wi-fi, a TV with cable, and a gas grill for backyard barbecues. Who says you have to be relegated to staying around the city for the holiday?
